As soon as he returned the rifle was off to Brian at SSK Firearms, I had already sent a bag full of dummy rounds loaded with the 500 gr Safari Solids. Brian's mission was to get this rifle to feed and function 100% with these, as in a couple of weeks Andy was off to Zimbabwe for elephant, and needed this rifle.
Brian had the rifle sorted out in a couple of days, on its way back to Andy, piece of cake............ SSK Firearms does not suffer any issues when it comes to understanding how to make a DGR work, and in addition, they understand bullet performance, and why superior performance is required in the field. SSK Firearms, Brian Alberts, JD Jones, nor myself will settle for less than desirable performance whether in rifle, cartridge, or most important the bullet required for the mission at hand, and in this case the .500 caliber 500 Safari Solid.
Both 500 MDM and the Safari 500 gr Solid had proven itself over and over again in the field, just as it did in all the prior test work done here. I had taken elephant myself, Brent below had stopped a charging elephant with his at very close quarters (See Below), Stan had used his 500 MDM on multitudes of elephant, including the giant 90+ pounder you see below. Penetration straight and extreme, along with hitting hard up front and doing a lot damage. Well, once again the 500 MDM and the Safari 500 Solid did its job, this time for our friend Andy, and did it with ease.
